Rehema Ministries is excited to announce Brooke Fleming as our new Executive Director. Brooke was born in Washington State and has lived in the “Evergreen State” most of her life. When Brooke takes a break from work, which she smiles and says, “Is not often…”, she loves to go for a drive to enjoy the rugged beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Brooke also looks forward to any opportunity to explore God’s big, beautiful world. Brooke has a passion for meeting new people from all walks of life and cultures.
Brooke enjoys living on the “sunny side” of Washington State with her husband, daughter, and four legged family members, a black lab and husky pup. She is especially excited to begin this new chapter at Rehema Ministries and is thankful that God has provided this opportunity!
Brooke has over 20 years of experience serving nonprofits. Her undergraduate studies were completed at Central Washington University and she received her Masters in Nonprofit Management from Eastern University. Brooke enjoys the process of organizational transformation. One of her greatest strengths is developing and implementing strategic initiatives to improve, fund, and grow mission focused programs and services.
Brooke is passionate about helping orphans in our world, especially in Africa. Brooke relayed to us that much of her passion comes from the legacy of adoption that has spanned the past four generations on both sides of her family. “I come from a long lineage of love. My maternal grandmother and my paternal great grandmother were both abandoned children. Both needed a family and a home. God smiled and sent some beautiful, compassionate people to take them in and raise them as their own. I have been raised to believe that there is always room for one more person at the table.”
“I am called to this work…to be a conduit of hope for the children God has entrusted to us in Kenya. As a follower of Christ, I am adopted into the best family of all…God’s family. It is my hope that the children we serve will know how precious they are to our Father in Heaven and what an amazing plan He has for their lives!”
We are so excited that Brooke is now a part of our Rehema Ministries family. We are confident in her abilities to move our organization forward into this new chapter, while she builds upon and honors the amazing and blessed contributions of our Co-Founders Emeritus, Joyce and Ron Panzero.
